Precision is key as you navigate the gracefully curving fairways, and the strategically positioned greenside traps demand careful consideration.

The 18 holes wind their way through mangroves and inland channels hosting a marina, with the bonus of a par 4 running parallel to the stunning Caribbean beach.

Top Tee Time Time Tips
1. Pretty much every hole has water, you are either on the fairway or in the mangroves, so take plenty of spare golf balls.
2. With a large local membership it gets very busy Saturday morning so avoid then if possible.
3. Short on time: tee times are available until late afternoon, tee off at 3pm when it´s always quite and be finished by 5.30pm
4. Due to its location over the mangroves mosquitos can be a problem so bring some repellent.
5. Partner doesn´t play golf? There is a large shopping complex next door that overlooks the Marina which is a nice way to spend a few hours.
6. Forget about all the slices, snap hooks and double-bogies you´ve made on the previous 13 holes…at only 282 yards, the 14th only requires a good drive onto the green for a tap-in Eagle, so “Man Up” and get the driver out!
